Top 7 Feeling Confused and Not Making Sense While Talking Causes

  1. 1.Traumatic Brain Injury

    Traumatic brain injury (TBI) happens when a bump, blow, jolt, or other head injury causes damage to the brain.

    You should go to the hospital immediately. More than half of Traumatic Brain Injuries are bad enough that people must go to the hospital. The worst injuries can lead to permanent brain damage or death. There, doctors will examine you and take images of your brain to see if there's any bleeding.

    A COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) exacerbation is a worsening of your COPD, causing you to struggle for breathe. This is often caused by an infection in the lungs.

  6. 6.Low Calcium Level

    Hypocalcemia is a condition where there is not enough calcium in the blood. Calcium is a mineral contained in the blood, which helps the heart and other muscles function properly, and is needed to maintain strong teeth and bones.

    You should seek advice and a blood test from your primary care physician. To treat hypocalcemia, take a calcium and vitamin D supplement daily, and increase consumption of dairy products such as milk, cheese, and yogurt. You should also avoid drinking too many soft drinks, which contain phosphates - a chemical that can interfere with the body's ability to absorb calcium. Avoiding salty foods is also helpful, as salt makes the body lose calcium.
